11 Unique Things To Do This Halloween In Vancouver If You Don't Want To Go Clubbing

Halloween is an awesome time of year! You get to dress up, have a legit excuse to eat copious amounts of candy, and the parties are always lit.

But sometimes, not gonna lie, the parties can start to get a little old. And there's always that one friend that gets way to wasted, starts puking up all over her Kylie Jenner costume (ie. what she looks like every Friday night), and you always end up taking care of her.

This year, skip paying cover and having to take care of that one friend. Instead, hit up on of these awesome places to go to and things to do for Halloween in Vancouver. #Halloween2016 is gonna be tight.

9. Try to solve your way out of a Halloween-themed escape room

I honestly can't think of anything scarier than being trapped in a room and having to solve your way out of it, but at least you'll probably be with your friends. Try an awesome escape room like Exit or Locked.
